Schneider Electric, Claroty Partner on Industrial Network Security

Energy management and automation giant Schneider Electric has teamed up with industrial cybersecurity startup Claroty to offer its customers solutions for protecting industrial control systems (ICS) and operational technology (OT) networks.

Energy management and automation giant Schneider Electric has teamed up with industrial cybersecurity startup Claroty to offer its customers solutions for protecting industrial control systems (ICS) and operational technology (OT) networks.

Claroty, which emerged from stealth mode in September 2016 with $32 million in funding, will market its products through Schneider’s Collaborative Automation Partner Program (CAPP).

Schneider’s CAPP enables its customers to find the right technology solutions and integrate them with the company’s own offering. Claroty, whose products have undergone rigorous testing to ensure interoperability, will provide network monitoring solutions.

Claroty’s platform is designed to protect ICS and continuously monitor OT networks for threats without disrupting operations. The product enables organizations to control remote employee and third-party access to critical systems, including record their sessions. It also creates a detailed inventory of industrial network assets, identifies configuration issues, monitors traffic, and looks for anomalies that could indicate the presence of a malicious actor.

The product can be integrated with Schneider Electric’s existing cybersecurity and edge control offerings through the company’s EcoStruxure architecture.

“At Schneider Electric we recognize the urgent need to assist our customers in enhancing their safety and cybersecurity programs. One way we are addressing this need is through partnering with Claroty to provide real-time network monitoring and anomaly-detection,” said David Doggett, senior director of cybersecurity for Schneider Electric’s Industry Business.

“Passive network intrusion detection techniques are critical for applications where system availability is paramount,” Doggett added. “Claroty’s platform can strengthen solutions against known cyber attacks that have bypassed existing boundary protections. The technology can also alert network operators about novel attack vectors or attacks initiated by rogue insiders using existing tools and credentials.”

Schneider Electric is not the only automation giant that has teamed up with Claroty. In February, Rockwell Automation announced a partnership with the company for combined security offerings.
